I will be holding workshops, unless otherwise indicated, in the quaint Gold Rush town of Sutter Creek. Located just 45 min from Sacramento, in the California foothills, Sutter Creek has long been a charming tourist destination. Here you will find antique, gift and clothing stores, wine tasting, restaurants, Bed & Breakfasts, and a hotel close by for the hours when not painting.
These workshops will be unique because of both the location and the size of the class. Students will get to see my working studio and offices along with the gallery of original paintings, some of which have not been released to the public. The class size is special because it is limited to only 8 students (most classes are filled at 20 students). This allows me to give each of you more individual attention and guidance.
These workshops are for all levels of students, from beginner to advanced. Come if you want to learn more about pastel, refine your work, learn new or different techniques or just have fun!
I will do short demonstrations of my painting a new image for you to follow. After each demonstration, you will go back to your easels to work on the painting. As you work, I will wander around the room to help you in the process. I want you to go home with a better understanding of my process and hopefully, a painting that makes you feel very happy.
Workshop fee will be posted as to each workshop, half of which is due as a deposit at the time of REGISTRATION. The remaining balance of the workshop is due 30 days prior to the date of your workshop.
"You have not only provided constant wisdom regarding being an artist, but also the technique and inspiration that only a great artist can provide.
You are a constant muse unto yourself. Thank you so much for your unselfish generosity in teaching your amazing discoveries in art." V. L.
"My dear, dear Lesley...
I truly didn't expect to fall so madly for painting with pastels - I just knew your warm and generous nature would make this a wonderful learning experience! But now I adore pastels and maybe this will grow" V. B.
